Property Description

Full description

A Newly Refurbished and Beautifully Presented Licensed Restaurant (28-32 cover), with an attractive rear courtyard garden (16 cover), in the Cathedral City of Truro.

Location - Gravy Boesti is situated adjacent to the County Courts on Edward Street, a short walk from the centre of the busy Cathedral City of Truro.

As the main administrative and commercial centre in Cornwall, Truro has seen significant commercial and retail investment in recent years making it a thriving and vibrant city. The continuing residential development in and around the city, together with plans for a new stadium and expansive development just to the west, mean the area will see increased growth, certainly for the foreseeable future.

The Property - The original property has been extended to the rear to form the principal dining area, with a theatre style kitchen and 28 covers. A large skylight and wide opening glass doors to the rear make the dining area feel light and spacious.

The business occupies a traditional two-storey period cottage; a facade that belies the contemporary and high quality interior. The original property has been extended to the rear to form the principal dining area, with a theatre style kitchen and 28 covers.

To the rear is an attractive terrace garden providing a further 16 covers. On the first floor is an office, utility room, preparation room and staff WC.

The Business - Recently featured in 'Cornwall Living' (June 2017 Issue), Gravy Boesti recently traded at lunchtimes and evenings from 12 noon until 2.30pm and from 5.30pm until late. Its close proximity to the Courts ensures regular and repeat trade from Legal professionals from across Cornwall. Due to unforseen personal circumstances, our clients ceased trading in August 2017.

Prior to Augsut, Gravy Boesti was operated by our clients with the assistance of one full time and 2 part time staff members but the business would be ideally suited to a husband and wife team or aspiring chef.
